MACY'S 2018


40th Anniversary Trip For Homewood

We are proud to announce that the Homewood Patriot Marching Band has been invited to participate in the 2018 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC.  This will be the record 9th appearance of the band and will mark the 40th anniversary of our first Macy's appearance in 1978.  With hundreds of high school and college bands competing for just 10 slots, it is a huge honor to be selected for such a prestigious event and a tremendous source of pride for our students, faculty, parents and alumni. Pictured are members of the 1978 Homewood Patriot Marching Band; our first group to travel to Macy's.
